Panel Submissions

Submission Process

Are you interested in submitting a panel for On-Con? We'd love to have you, and we do things a little differently. Because YouTube likes to block videos that show copyrighted video content, we stream pre-recorded panels at On-Con.

First, please reach out to brent@geekarchaeology.com with your panel idea. We're looking for any panel that deals directly with anime, manga, and the Japanese otaku industry, particularly those with an analytical or historical focus. Our theme this year is "anime in history," but your panel does not have to fit into that theme.

Then, we ask that you pre-record a panel of no longer than 60 minutes.

Please do not include video or audio clips longer than 3 seconds in your panel, and avoid hard swearing (f-bombs, etc.). Unfortunately, media clips greatly increase the chance that the con's entire stream is taken down, and hard swearing would put the con in a different category on YouTube. You can use still images. We will review your panel to ensure there are no issues.

Once your video is done, upload it to a file sharing service (Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.) and email brent@geekarchaeology.com by midnight April 30, 2021 with the following information:

  • A link to your panel's video file (with any instructions for downloading it)
  • Your panel's title (50 characters or less)
  • A description of your panel (300 characters or less)
  • Your name or pseudonym (this will be listed with your panel)
  • (optional) The URL of your website, YouTube channel, etc. (we will link your name/pseudonym to this URL on the website)

Note: You will retain full rights to your panel video. We will broadcast your video on our livestream, and it will be available as part of the recorded video of that livestream, but that's our only intended use. You may post and use your video however you want.
